The mission of the Challenged Athletes Foundation (CAF) provides opportunities and support to people with physical challenges, so they can pursue active lifestyles through physical fitness and competitive athletics. CAF believes that involvement in sports at any level increases self-esteem, encourages independence and enhances quality of life. Funds raised through this event will directly impact the lives of challenged athletes by providing adaptive sports equipment, training and competition expenses.
